The Mehri examples cited in this book, unless otherwise noted, are taken from the texts published in this volume, all of which were collected by T.M. Johnstone. Passages are cited by text number and “line” number, so 35:11 refers to Text 35, “line” number 11. I put the word “line” in quotation marks, because the numbered “lines” often run more than one line on the page. In order to facilitate comparison with the edition of Stroomer (1999), which includes most of these texts, I have kept the same line numbering as much as possible, though occasionally I have moved a few words to the preceding or following line.
